Hello folks.

Does anyone know where I can find the download for Gimp 2.6.6? I just got this 2.8 after a reinstall of windows, and its being very difficult. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi F6

I still use Gimp 2.6 for my skins, but I must say that some of the new feutures in GIMP 2.8 looks really good for us skinners Very Happy Cool

I would say try and find Gimp 2.6 is you want, but I would personally say that try wityh Gimp 2.8 and persevere with it, as you may find it better that 2.6 Cool

But what sort of problems are you having with it? Confused

Good luck, and sorry I wasn't much help Confused

I've found this at oldApps, it may be usefull if you really want a downgrade. But as already said, it seems to be nothing wrong with the last version... Rolling Eyes

Older versions to the right...
Better use Revo Uninstaller to get rid of the newer version first.

Good Luck!

I haven't been able to get 2.8 to export .bmp's correctly. They're always 3MB, which Bright doesn't like. If I use the same settings on 2.6, it comes out 1MB. So I still use 2.6 for skins, while using 2.8 for photos and other graphics stuff.

Have you set your Image/Mode/ to Indexed? This is my most common mistake. Mad

I've never got Bright to work as a 'stand alone' program - and I don't have/use PS. Im still on 2,6.6 myself.

A .bmp in RGB mode is spot on 3MB... just index, sometimes I will use colour > 'posterise'-ing it to 256 colour before indexing.

See that's the thing. When I convert a skin from RGB to Indexed in 2.8, 1: it looks terrible, 2: it's still 2MB.

In 2.6, I don't have to change it to indexed before I run it through Bright. I just save it as a 24 bit bmp and it works.
